Gallagher G-70M Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought (used, ~1967)

  • Brazilian rosewood back & sides on this Slope D vintage Gallagher guitar
  • Spruce top
  • According to Don at Gallagher Guitars: 
    The first two G-70, 12 fret necks had model designations of G - 70M. I think it is a 1967 or 1968 model. There were 2 Brazilian rosewood 12 frets made in the first seven 12 frets.
  • Ivoroid body, fretboard & headstock bindings
  • Ebony fretboard with diamond & square MOP inlays
  • Ebony bridge
  • Fine herringbone rosette & top purfling
  • Faux tortoiseshell pickguard
  • MOP builder headstock logo
  • Grover tuning machines
  • Strap pin in neck, end pin inside case
  • Appears to be the original hardshell case
  • The guitar has wear appropriate for the age of the instrument
  • We repaired 3 side cracks on intake.  There is plenty of finish checking on the guitar and normal nicks from playing over the years
  • The tone is very impressive, it really sounds like an old guitar - expansive and explosive when needed, but it also responds to a light touch as you can hear in our videos and sound samples
  • Condition: Used, Very Good ++
  • Frets to body: 12
  • Scale Length: 25.25"
  • Nut Width: 1 25/32"
